The thespian, real name Pran Kishan Sikand, was bestowed the 44th Dadasaheb Phalke Award for Lifetime Achievement earlier this year. His condition was frail, and his family and friends felt the honour came too late in the day for an actor, whose veratility and body of work set an example for generations to come. Pran's funeral saw only a few members from the Hindi movie industry in attendance. Veteran writer Gulzar was among the early attendees, and he was followed by Karan Johar, Shakti Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa, Raj Babbar, as well as megastar Amitabh Bachchan and writer Salim Khan. less
